TripIt travel organizer app arrives on Google Glass
Google Glass has been in the news quite a lot — most recently, it received a firmware update, became available to the public in open beta, and saw the fancy Minuum keyboard added to its Glassware lineup. The latest addition to said lineup is the TripIt travel organizer app.
The app is marketed by TripIt as a way to leave your phone in your pocket and enjoy your surroundings through Glass, while still keeping on top of all things travel. At the airport? Your flight details will conveniently pop up. Have any other reservations, be it for a car, hotel, or anything else? Those will show up for you as well.
If you have TripIt Pro ($49/year with free 30-day trial), you’ll even get real-time flight notifications, a godsend for regular travelers. With just a tap, you can also find alternate flights in case you want to extend a trip or cut one short.
As previously mentioned, the TripIt service itself is free, while the features labeled as Pro above will run you $49 a year. The TripIt Glassware is apparently already in Google Play, though we can’t seem to find it quite yet; we’ll update this post when you can download and try it for yourself, provided you have a pair of Glass laying around.
